Description Bharti Kundal 2016-12-22 20:34:19 UTC
It was found that Red Hat JBoss Core Services incorrectly included CVE-2016-3705 as resolved in Apache HTTP 2.4.23 (erratum RHSA-2016:2957). The release did not include the fix to libxml2, leaving it vulnerable to a Denial of Service attack due to a Stack Overflow. This is a regression CVE for CVE-2016-3705.

Hi Adam

Thanks for the information here and in the related bugs. I guess there is though some confusion around the CVEs. E.g. then SuSE is tracking that CVE for https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1017497 .

Regards,
Salvatore

Thank you for notifying us about that, Salvatore. I put the comment in Suse bugzilla:

Comment 7 Tomas Hoger 2017-02-23 17:25:35 UTC
This CVE id is for the same issue as CVE-2016-3705 (bug 1332443).  This additional CVE was assigned because the original issue was listed as fixed in RHSA-2016:2957 for the Red Hat JBoss Core Services:

https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-2957.html

However, that erratum actually failed to include the fix for the issue.

Therefore, this new CVE is specific to the Red Hat JBoss Core Services product and is better described as: missing/incorrect fix for CVE-2016-3705 in the Red Hat JBoss Core Services.

JBCS 2.4.29 RHSA-2018:2486 includes rebased libxml2 to 2.9.7 which addresses this CVE and CVE-2016-9596.

It seems the previous comment already answers your question, doesn't it?
